He was explaining to city denote a bubble screen is number assurance -- I EC yeah. I bet she knows now the crowd had to enjoy so has yet MLB insider Tim curt can I do today Tim. While but they'll try to technical -- it. Aren't. We -- hoop if it's -- to keep track of tough to keep up well with all the moves. Billy Beane in the days are making let's start with a bullpen that -- -- Jim Johnson and Lou Gregor said how good can the a's bullpen beat him going to be among the best in baseball next year. Yes and it has been for a couple years and now the chance to be really even better job. I do not understand what the Orioles were doing. In net trade and I checked everywhere yesterday that is one of the great steals you'll ever see in granite chin up and make a lot of money -- get. By -- -- fit in games in back to back years in the game and our second major news. Isn't good enough to play on the thirteenth minute in a plate and -- go as far as I can tell that they've upgraded obviously. Would. Back bring about or not they added their closer and -- granderson but that wipe out uttered that we've seen over the years. He's very very effective setup guy and now they've got their bullpen covered again about the sixth inning on. Netscape guys that the way baseball works today that is absolutely crucial. You shortened game that now the eighties with their new bullpen can't do that just about a well. Well Tim what's your opinion I know you you know that Orioles organization very well used to covered every day what what's your opinion of Jim Johnson. People are very focused on the nine blown saves from last season also a lot of hits per innings -- -- not a lot of strikeouts. -- well he's not a strikeout pitcher but the one thing you happen now. He's not gonna go walk the ball park engage in trouble that way -- the nine blown saves were nearly -- store last year. But it you really really look he only had a couple of really terrible weeks there. And I know that. They were particularly worried about it stopped he did give up more than there used to but the same time. I know editorials are kind of in an upper yesterday -- war what do we do it how could we do that how could we trade this guy. And it that the matter of money. That just doesn't follow either how in the world the Baltimore Orioles can't afford -- out in the open aid and there's something wrong that equation so. I think he's way better than what you had meaning would -- port on the gave you a closer and they got very good. What was the sales pitch then to Baltimore as far as -- mile weeks is assets aside from the speed and and he was unable even cracked an elite roster last year. Yeah I don't think this was about two miles we should be -- I think it was about clearing and payrolls space. And now the only way he. Only way it can be justified is it the Orioles used saved money and Jim Johnson to go out and get. Somehow a quality starting pitcher which I don't think they're going to be able to. When they're not use that money to get starting pitcher I think they've looked at Jim Johnson long term beat the agent on it. -- -- million dollars on long term where more willing to pay that. So they traded him instead in again. I still don't understand this from Baltimore's and and I would be really really surprised in two mile we -- there everyday second base here. We're trying to catch our breath and all the moves Billy Beane has made this week with Tim -- to and from ESPN. Looking ahead a lot of a's fans anticipating maybe something bigger may be your Brett Anderson trade. What Jeff from what we know Tim what's the likelihood is some -- that transpiring. Well that's certainly a possibility. It's that Kazmir in the bowl. I'd be careful that trade Brett Anderson because he's still. You know quality Major League pitcher which is obviously got to stay healthy. Well it's only eighteen out there looking for starting pitching that would be logical that the -- would. -- and he had Billy dean is the absolute master. Clinton players taking guys creating its -- And then moving somebody to create another. Set of circumstances he's really really good -- that so much. -- -- a lot of other GMs that he'd get three moved there on the line they can already so I would be surprised prayer and we traded. But there and -- not you in way you know they have such great debt starting pitched. Tim overall AL west is just very interesting right now I mean you've you've got me I assume the Rangers aren't done to use in the saint. Yet the Rangers -- -- out as you know made and so much money there that. They're TV contract that they can do all sorts and they're gonna ask. Somehow some way another starting pitcher year. They address their power issue by going in getting steel group will see that works out that. There are done they understand how good the days are they understand they're not going to be EPA that division. With the club that they have right now and one more major move -- to add to the Rangers I'm not quite sure how they get that front line starting pitcher. But they're gonna try everything they can and they have resources to do it that money and kids in the moderately. And Tim one of the things we're hearing in the wake of the Ellsbury to the Yankees deal for big money is at Seattle may be in India. Robby Cano don't you know derby does that potentially make sense to you. Well it makes sense -- rather -- to know is all about the money and Seattle opera model. Yet it makes sense in the Seattle media and of course the Mariners -- in trouble offensively and they would line up and even match. And overpay to get wrapped -- -- it in the middle of their order. But there's still room from what I can tell for a -- to go back to the Yankees are still payrolls space. For him to go back assuming they're not giving given more than 200 million. And they're not from what I can tell. So it just seemed illogical to need it even if Seattle is willing to offer more than Yankee let's. It absolutely amount more. Why would go to Seattle when he got a chance to go back to the -- maybe win another championship. And play. Played at all same year as opposed to perhaps -- in Seattle and maybe get a little lost out there. And Tim there are few giants fans obviously they got a couple World Series to -- for them but they're looking at what the -- are doing get a little jealous any indications that Tim Bryant savient may have another mover to up his sleeve this winner. Well he's done as big things are ready aren't you guys know what and who would Lincecum and the gym -- and so I wouldn't expect. -- a big giant move by the giant cheer but they can mix and match Javier Lopez. Perfect example trying to keep what they. Have. You never ever ever underestimate Bryant to Nadine knows exactly how this works. But I would guess that they're down with their biggest boost like he'd been around guys get Tim -- Again there there just aren't that many impact players out there right now and -- to make a major trade. I think the giants are pretty much kept that team that -- achieve. Open 2014. Him Kirk junior gentlemen sir thanks -- time next time zone blitz eighty's he now I -- I -- It. Thanks very much there.
